  1. I drive a 1999 mondeo 1.8 lx and when I lock my car and head into work I gettin called out to car park at least twice a day to turn alarm off, thing is all the doors r closed and there is nothin I can see wrong.. so im wondering if there is a sensor somewhere in the door that isnt workin properly and is there a way that I can turn it off ie can I turn the sensor off through a diagnostic machine or has anyone any ideas as to what to do as im scrapping the car in 2 months and am not spending money on fixing anything on car! Any suggestion appreciated

    Srs Connector Light

    Hello there my srs airbag light is currently flashing I posted up about this and a few people said to me to disconnect the connector and check to see if its faulty and was jus wondering if It is safe enough to disconnect the connector underneath the seats without it affecting the airbag?
